Yeah Afrik is a rlly cool language! But also so complicated w the grammar rules and verbs etc. And yes kombuis, which is a word that annoys me bc it's kitchen which is a room but it doesnt have "kamer" like all the other room words in Afrikaans.

Yeah man! But - and I’m sure you know this but I am a source of useless knowledge - it’s the Dutch word for the kitchen in a ship and because many Dutch ships stopped there, it kinda got integrated in the language ^^ 

Sorry I probably sound really redundant but aaah I can’t help spouting useless facts…
